He is the first to know that his inaugural season at the Etihad Stadium wasn’t a great one, and talking to the Daily Mirror he had no problem to admit so.
I was disappointed with my first season at City, purely because we had such a great team and we set the bar high. We all believed we could do better, and I know that I could have done better in some games
John Stones said, looking back at his first 12 months at Manchester City, after his £47.5 million move from Everton.
As for that price tag and how difficult it made his first season as a Citizen, the 23-year-old looked almost indifferent.
The transfer fee doesn’t really make it harder for me. I’m very fortunate to have been bought for that amount of money, almost flattered by City paying that much. And, of course, I want to do myself justice
the England international said, before commenting on the criticism he received these last 12 months.
I have a thick skin and I don’t worry about criticism from the outside too much. Ultimately, I only listen to the manager, my teammates and my family
he said. Last, he revealed about how eager he is to start winning medals with City, saying
As a kid, my team always won trophies, but in my professional career I’ve not won anything yet and I’m hungry to get a medal around my neck.
